When i bought my home my parents helped me set it up like most parents would and helped to decorate/do it up.... 4 years down the line things have become sour and they want to "Safeguard" in there own words there "Share" that they payed to do these things for me, however i'm in the middle of a house move (Contracts etc.). Now i know legally they don't own a "share" as they put it but are they entitled to any money from the sale, the sale will be complete in a few weeks so is it a case of once we've sold they aren't entitled to anything from the new house or anything at all?

My husband and I received a letter from a solicitor, instructed by my husbands parents. Requesting that as agreed we should transfer our property into their name. No such agreement has ever been made. Around 7-8 years ago they gifted us some money. As our relationship with them has broken down for sometime, they have turned on us and and saying that the money was for our property. We have never ever agreed to this. Please can you advise.

My 16 year old daughter starts a 3 year Professional Diploma (degree equivalent) course in September. As this is higher than an A level qualification, the government advice on child maintenance states that child maintenance is only due up to A level or equivalent, but not higher. I don't mind continueing the outgoing but I would prefer to pay directly to me daughter than her mother. Please could you clarify if this is legally ok to do so.

We currently have building works ongoing in our property. The neighbour's boundary wall was broken by mistake by our builders. We have made the boundary wall now as it was before on the same line.. However, the neighbour is not happy saying that the quality of the bricks used is not good & is demanding compensation of £5000. She is also pushing us saying that she will take legal action.

Is she able to take legal action against us & what is it we need to do?

My father passed away in May 2016 and his will stated 3 executors - his partner and two friends.

I paid for the funeral costs on the explicit agreement my Dad's partner would reimburse the costs shortly after the funeral. Since the funeral she has refused to talk to me and also convinced the other two executors to stand down so she is now the sole executor.

The executor has refused to give me sight of the will. Probate was granted in January this year and I have since accessed his will online.

My father owned a house in his sole name (at which his partner lived). He also had an ongoing legal claim for asbestos exposure which was estimated to pay £70k+.

His will also included an addendum which mirrored his partners will. This stated an agreement for both their assets to be included in trust for the 3 beneficiaries (myself and his partners two daughters).

I've left things to settle for a while but have recently tried contacting the exeutor again, several messages left and still no response. I have 4 questions:

1. What action should I take to recover the funeral costs and obtain my personal belongings from my dad's house, and more importantly what obligation does she have as executor. I have receipts and paperwork.

2. As beneficiary of the trust what rights do I have to see the executors accounts, and how should I go about requesting these?

3. Can his partner revoke the addendum agreement and exclude me from her own will?

4. Assuming the executor follows my fathers will and places his tangible assets in trust, what happens when she passes away - who would take on the role of trustee given the other two executors have stood down?

Kind Regards

Billy
